Once again I'm giving out too much with my hints.

Actually, HD DVD & BluRay are 2 different things.

MCC wrote:Are hints 4 & 6 related to bar code numbers

As far as I'm aware, no.

MCC wrote:Hint 5 I believe is related to DNA - the gene code.

Definitely not.

Additional hint 7: If I express the piece of information in another format, there's a chance we may not see this whole thread again. (I hope it never comes to that.)

Additional hint 8: The format of this piece of information is somehow related to a perfect game in baseball.

That was a way for me to say that underquark has (almost) got it, though not in the manner I intended. (Which was my own fault though.)

To fully solve the riddle, the solver needs to:

- correctly name the piece of information, and include the wikipedia article if possible
- explain the format of this information
- explain how each hint is relevant (e.g. Streisand, the pic)

The format of this piece of information is somehow related to a perfect game in baseball.

There appears to be a hierarchy of perfect games but I guess the realistic one is no hitter getting to first base.

Base, numbers - hmmm

27 hitters out = 26 letters and a space.

It's hard to earn a reputation as a useful information website when one can't even count black dots accurately.The site Bigtone53 quoted wrote:Sixteen major league perfect games have been pitched in the entire history of baseball:

Final additional hint:

Here is the same information in another format, related to the baseball players Rod Carew and Kei Igawa:

I particularly like this one, because it can be broken into bits and pieces all with some meanings. This is extremely rare among other formats, such as:

which is related to poker, and:

which is related to the I Ching (aka the Book of Changes).

Actually, these guys together almost got it. But nobody has done these 2 things I listed:

Time for closure.

(#29 is the jersey number of Carew & Igawa, in poker a deck has 52 cards, and I Ching is the study of the 64 hexagrams.)

In the base-29 representation again a=1, b=2, ..., z=26. Amazingly the "digits" 0, 27 & 28 don't appear here, and all the letters form groups of meaningful jargons.

In the base-52 representation A=0, B=1, ..., Z=25, a=26, b=27, ..., z=51.

In the base-64 representation 0=0, 1=1, ..., 9=9, A=10, B=11, ..., Z=35, a=36, b=37, ..., z=61, *=62, #=63 (all the symbols from your mobile phone keypad).

As Bigtone pointed out, a perfect game involves the number 27. Also, baseball is a hint to the word "base".I wrote:Additional hint 8: The format of this piece of information is somehow related to a perfect game in baseball.

They're base-29, base-52 & base-64 representations respectively.I wrote:Final additional hint:
